Principal's Message

Welcome Wildcats!

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Mr. Persico, Assistant Principal, and I are ecstatic to be working alongside the families and staff of Westport Middle School in supporting the educational, social, and emotional needs of students in Grades 5-8.

The mission of the Westport Middle School is to educate all students to become 21st century learners, to seek and value knowledge, and to emerge as productive citizens in a global community. I hold all students to high expectations for their individual success and commitment to the school’s mission statement while fostering an inclusive Wildcat community. I encourage all students to invest themselves in what Westport Middle School has to offer, both in terms of academics and extra-curricular activities. I look forward to witnessing all the great happenings in our classrooms, on the athletic fields, and within our plethora of school clubs and organizations!

I feel strongly that education is a collaborative effort between families and the school community, and open communication is critical for a student’s success. Please do not hesitate to reach out to me with any questions or concerns regarding your children. Please note that communications from Westport Middle School will primarily be digital. This includes monthly newsletters, progress reports, and report cards, and other important messages. It is crucial that accurate emails are on files for all parents and guardians. Please make sure you have a username and password to the Community Portal as well since progress reports and report cards will not be mailed home.

On behalf of the entire Westport Middle School administration and staff, I wish everyone a happy and healthy school year. Go Wildcats!

Assistant Principal Message

Greetings Parents, Guardians, and Wildcat Students,

Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! Mrs. Charette and I are so excited to begin our second year as your building leaders for Westport Middle School. We are confident that this year will be even better than last!

Much like Mrs. Charette, I hold all students to high expectations for their individual success and commitment to the school’s mission statement while fostering an inclusive Wildcat community. The two of us intend to provide a safe, meaningful education for our students that fosters grit, perseverance, and accountability. I believe that all students can succeed, and I am determined to ensure that our students have a positive experience at Westport Middle School.

Open and honest communication is a crucial component of student success. For some of you, this is your first year with us at WMS. We recognize that can be a little intimidating and are here to support you! Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or concerns you may have. I look forward to an inspiring school year full of new experiences for our students. Go Wildcats!
